Abstract

This special issue examines the ways in which the British past was collected and displayed in Britain between 1850 and 1950, looking at objects ranging from Anglo-Saxon artefacts, to objects relating to medical history, to ethnographic and 'folk' objects. It shows that a range of issues impacted on this collection and display, from nationalist ideologies, to ways of thinking about other people geographically as well as temporally, as well as changing ideas about gender.
